oreo party, part 1

It's no secret that there are TONS of Oreo flavors. Most of time new flavors seem intriguing, but if you are me, you don't want to spend money on a pack of Oreos that you may end up hating and throwing away. 

The best solution to this problem I found was to throw an Oreo party! So last fall, that's what I did. Between 12 people we tried SEVENTEEN different Oreos: chocolate, cookie dough, mint, birthday cake, caramel apple, berry, banana split, watermelon, heads / tails double stuf, pumpkin spice, triple double, peanut butter cup, lemon, limeade, fruit punch, peanut butter, and root beer. 

We had almost every Oreo offered, minus some of the basic ones like regular Oreos [boring], reduced fat [what's the point?] and double stuf [which I personally think are the best, but everyone has tried them already]. 

Before bringing out the Oreos we had lunch, you know, to try and get some healthy food in our bellies before all the sugar to come. After lunch we hung out in the backyard talking / playing before getting to the cookies. 

Eventually everyone was ready to try some Oreos, so a few of us went inside to set up the table. One by one, people would come in from outside and every single person that walked in would exclaim 'whoa, it smells like sugar in here!'. 

Only one of my friends ate one whole cookie of each flavor [way to go John!] while the rest of us mainly picked at all the cookies just to get a taste. Some even tried to mix flavors. 

And of course, milk was on hand. We even had some fresh milk, thanks to Katie and Andy's cows. 

Here's some random thoughts after cookie tasting: 

Here are a few pictures from the party. In my next post I'll have some additional pictures of the decorations as well as MORE cookie pictures!
